TabletMac Now Available for $699*
Who knew? Everyone is waiting for the Chosen One’s product announcement, yet a Mac tablet has been available for a while. Axiotron will take *customer-supplied Macbooks and for 7 bills or so turn it into a swanky tablet.
The downside is that it’s still a bulky, heavy, full featured laptop. Pretty cool for a mod though. You would think that Apple would wage war over this – but quite the contrary. According to the US Patent and Trademark Office, Apple registered “TabletMac” in 2005. It was granted in 2008, but Apple transfered ownership of the brand to Axiotron.
We can safely say that ‘TabletMac’ will not be unveiled next week! Some have suggested the iPad (due to a trademark battle) or the iSlate… Personally, I hope that Apple drops the silly ‘i’ thing.
